and_o now_o i_o begin_v in_o some_o measure_n to_o apprehend_a what_o a_o temptation_n be_v in_o a_o time_n of_o temptation_n which_o be_v half_o a_o deliverance_n out_o of_o it_o this_o through_o the_o mercy_n of_o god_n in_o christ_n jesus_n i_o find_v by_o experience_n in_o prayer_n and_o about_o prayer_n i_o find_v first_o the_o subtlety_n of_o satan_n temptation_n wherein_o i_o find_v he_o prayer_n satan_n malice_n against_o the_o work_n of_o prayer_n to_o be_v as_o great_a hinderer_n of_o that_o work_n of_o prayer_n as_o of_o any_o other_o if_o he_o can_v keep_v from_o it_o he_o will_v

time_n it_o prove_v great_o to_o the_o devil_n disadvantage_n and_o much_o for_o my_o encouragement_n i_o find_v by_o experience_n that_o he_o be_v like_o a_o ape_n imitate_v what_o ever_o good_a god_n do_v in_o the_o soul_n and_o there_o be_v need_n of_o much_o of_o god_n to_o discern_v his_o policy_n in_o this_o particular_a he_o have_v counterfeit_a grace_n as_o well_o as_o god_n have_v

can_v not_o express_v myself_o in_o any_o thing_n because_o my_o temptation_n and_o tumult_n in_o my_o spirit_n be_v so_o high_a in_o many_o thing_n but_o the_o lord_n at_o that_o time_n do_v much_o

this_o that_o my_o condition_n be_v such_o as_o be_v incident_a to_o the_o saint_n the_o next_o thing_n i_o see_v be_v that_o jesus_n illumination_n more_o illumination_n christ_n be_v the_o

that_o justify_v the_o ungodly_a the_o more_o understanding_n i_o have_v of_o god_n in_o that_o way_n the_o more_o i_o see_v of_o my_o own_o filthiness_n i_o see_v filthiness_n in_o the_o holy_a

whether_o i_o be_v in_o a_o state_n of_o justification_n this_o i_o find_v that_o the_o more_o satan_n tempt_v i_o that_o his_o temptation_n be_v as_o a_o weapon_n put_v into_o my_o hand_n to_o

it_o the_o way_n of_o obtain_v it_o make_v i_o the_o more_o eagarly_a to_o pursue_v it_o at_o the_o hand_n of_o he_o who_o be_v able_a to_o give_v it_o god_n when_o his_o set_a time_n be_v come_v wrought_v every_o disposition_n in_o i_o suitable_a to_o the_o grace_n that_o he_o be_v about_o to_o convey_v to_o my_o soul_n and_o then_o i_o see_v nothing_o in_o any_o thing_n either_o in_o heaven_n or_o earth_n that_o can_v do_v i_o good_a but_o the_o reveal_n jesus_n christ_n to_o my_o soul_n duty_n will_v not_o justify_v no_o inherent_a grace_n be_v no_o justification_n in_o it_o

thus_o make_v he_o and_o all_o thing_n else_o for_o his_o use_n and_o service_n i_o believe_v that_o all_o that_o god_n make_v among_o which_o be_v man_n be_v exceed_o good_a and_o whatsoever_o be_v afterward_o not_o good_a be_v through_o the_o defect_n of_o the_o creature_n i_o believe_v that_o man_n be_v thus_o make_v and_o engage_v to_o serve_v his_o god_n yet_o be_v make_v liable_a to_o

recovery_n i_o believe_v that_o the_o way_n so_o find_v out_o and_o the_o mean_n by_o which_o alone_o fall_v man_n can_v be_v restore_v be_v by_o a_o mediator_n take_v upon_o he_o our_o nature_n that_o so_o he_o may_v pacify_v the_o wrath_n of_o god_n for_o the_o sin_n of_o our_o nature_n that_o we_o may_v thereby_o be_v fit_a to_o live_v with_o god_n in_o our_o nature_n concern_v original_a

christ_n who_o be_v the_o alone_a great_a reconciler_n betwixt_o god_n and_o his_o people_n i_o believe_v that_o the_o work_n of_o redemption_n be_v a_o great_a mystery_n for_o the_o divine_a nature_n to_o take_v upon_o he_o the_o humane_a nature_n o_o it_o be_v a_o great_a mystery_n i_o believe_v also_o that_o it_o be_v a_o great_a mystery_n in_o regard_n of_o the_o way_n of_o its_o particular_a
